Government is the Dragon: Why government is fundamentally redundant

The State is an expression of Satan, and by this I mean that it is an institutionalized lie, a father of lies, and by “lie” I mean contradiction. I mean an idea which, if one attempts to apply it, leads only to chaos, misery, and the death of Self. The State is anti-life, anti-human, and even anti-itself. The State is a contradiction, and contradictions are nothing, and they produce nothing. They are holes in reality.

Government is an institution built upon the metaphysical lie that human existence can only be perpetuated by force—that is, by violence—violence against the very nature of man himself—the Consciousness, the Will, Awareness of One’s Self, Volitional Application of Knowledge, and knowledge rooted in reason, reason being the non-contradictory integration of concepts to organize realty into meaningful truths in order to promote both the existence of One’s Self and that of Others to whom and with whom truths are communicated and expressed. Without the Self and Other, communication is impossible, and thus language, and thus concepts, and thus consciousness, itself, is meaningless. And because government is built upon a metaphysical lie—that man’s nature is insufficient to his own existence, and therefore he must be controlled by an Authority outside of his own rational and moral natural faculties—it can produce only lies about those it governs. And this it does with great prodigiousness. However, Government’s greatest lie of all is the one it tells about itself, to itself: that it serves a purpose, and that it is not an abject redundancy.

Government is always built upon a Collective Ideal, and that Ideal is Absolute. It is the Nation, the Tribe, the Race, the People, the Church, the Kingdom, the Worker’s Utopia, Diversity, Equality, Tolerance, the Common Good, etc….and this Ideal, being wholly abstract, is limitless. It cannot be contained within reality, and yet it must rule over reality; it must subordinate reality to itself; it must make reality a direct function of its own infinite essence. Thus, when it makes a claim to its explicit right to rule over man, and by extension man’s environment, it is making the implicit claim that it shall rule the whole of reality, and in fact, the whole of Existence. But by “rule over” we do not mean merely control…it is something much deeper and more fundamental than that. We mean consumption. We mean that it shall consume Existence. It shall become Existence…there shall be no functional distinction between Existence and the Ideal. All is the Ideal.

Government consumes everything around it, based upon the assumption and assertion, both expressed implicitly and explicitly in various iterations, that it alone has a right to exist. All else, then, is to be made into Itself. And thus here we can see that even the very name “Government’ is a lie. It does not govern…for if everything is Itself, then what is there for it to govern? There is to be no distinction between man and State, nor Environment and State (for Government cannot truly govern unless it governs the places where man exists), nor Reality and State (Government cannot truly govern unless it governs the relationship between man and man’s environment), nor Existence and State (Government cannot truly govern unless it governs the nature of how and why all things ARE).

Government, by its very nature and very expressed purpose, obliterates all distinctions between Itself and all else. Government is the incarnation of the Absolute, Infinite, Collective Ideal, which can have no limit, no boundary…that is the nature of an abstract. Like color, or diversity, or altruism, or natural law…these things are conceptual tools that man uses to organize his environment…they are not themselves distinct aspects of that environment. Thus, taken as they are, in there own essence, they are infinite…without boundaries or corners or limits, in the unfettered spaces of the human consciousness. Once the relationship is reversed, we can know of the inevitable chaos and unavoidable annihilation which must follow. Once man becomes a tool of the abstract, instead of the other way around, death must inevitably follow. To make an Abstract the reality into which man and all else must fit is to destroy the distinction. All becomes Abstract, and thus, all becomes nothing. And this is precisely what Government is, and does. Government is the establishment of an Abstract (Race, Nation, Diversity, Equality, Common Good, etc.) as that to which all else must be subordinated. The Abstract RULES OVER…but the Abstract, being infinite, has no frame of reference for anything other than itself. So to RULE OVER is to obliterate the distinction between that which rules and that which is ruled over. From the very start then, Government is rationally defunct…pointless, redundant, meaningless, contradictory. The very idea of Government cannot be accommodated at root by reason, and thus it cannot comport with man and the environment over which it is to rule. Government is stillborn. DOA. it is an institutionalized non-sequitur.

Finally, because Government is all-consuming, Government must necessarily consume even itself. Once it has reached its unavoidable conclusion, which is the categorical control of everyone and everything (assuming it hasn’t collapsed before this…yet, it will collapse, of this you can be sure), Government has nothing left to govern. In other words, when all has been absorbed Into itself, and all has become an expression of itself, there is nothing over which to exercise its Authority except itself. It will then begin to swallow itself…feeding on its own body to sustain its own existence.

And so in this sense, we can see that the State is indeed the Dragon; it is Satan in institutionalized form. The father of lies, where the liar lies principally to himself, and murders himself by fundamentally rejecting the truth about his own infinite pointlessness. Government is the Dragon, and Its name is Ouroboros.

Post Script—

To grant you freedom by placing you under Authority; to protect your life by refusing to allow you to live it; to provide for your existence by delegitimizing it; promoting peace amongst you while waging war against you…this is government; this is the State. As it is, was, and ever shall be. An institutionalized contradiction; a granting of all power to a bottomless pit, with no possible outcome except the pit, itself. It is nothing which intends to be everything.

The government cannot help you, and never could; the government hates you, and always did; the government fails, and always will; the government lies to you, because truth is not in its nature; the Government is a contradiction, and contradictions are holes in reality.

 

Masks for Chaos; Masks for Control: YOU are the real virus

If you are diagnosed with coronavirus, you are ordered to isolate; you must stay home and avoid contact with the public. Even if you wear a mask you are not permitted to occupy or traverse a public space. And the reason why you’re not permitted to break your quarantine, even if you’re wearing a mask, is because it’s understood both by the state and their medical advisors that masks do not prevent the transmission of coronavirus (or other microbial respiratory infections for that matter, which is why we’ve never been mass-ordered to wear them in public until now, where certain sociopolitical and economic conditions have altered the state’s approach to public health.)

If masks do not halt the transmission of coronavirus, and this is evidenced by the government demanding that those who have tested positive for the virus be isolated, and cannot breach their quarantine even if wearing a mask, then what is the point of mask laws?

Well, there is of course no medical answer to that question. The answer is purely political.

Some may argue that while masks do not halt the spread of the coronavirus, they reduce it, and this is why mask-wearing is compulsory. But there are a couple of critical problems with this. The first, and I believe simplest, is that if we know that masks do not prevent the transmission of coronavirus, then we simply cannot say that any reduction in coronavirus cases is due to mask-wearing. Again, masks are NOT preventative…this we know. Therefore mask-wearing can never reduce the virus transmission rate to zero. Even if we say that masks are a reductive measure, we know that because they cannot reduce to zero, “reduce” becomes an entirely meaningless concept—infinitely relative. Masks do not prevent the spread of coronavirus, therefore it will spread in spite of mask-wearing laws. Infection rates will continue to increase as a trend, even if people wear masks. Even if the infection rates were to slow, it could never be known with any degree of certainty that this is due to mask-wearing. It would be impossible to rule out all other factors and determine that the decrease in infection rates is because of masks. All we can know for certain is that masks do not prevent the spread of coronavirus. Thus, we cannot make any logical inferences from mask-wearing other than what is ALREADY known, which is, again, that masks do not prevent the spread of coronavirus. And this is why all those boxes of masks you are now seeing piled up  in stores all over the country come with disclaimers on them which read something to the effect of “THIS IS NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE”. Even the mask-making companies know that masks do not prevent the transmission of coronavirus. This should tell you everything you need to know.

Another problem is this: Because the coronavirus by its nature continually spreads (at least until it runs its course through a population and then self-limits, as viruses tend to do, or there is a vaccine), and there is no known cure or objectively preventative measure, then there is always at any given moment an unknown number of coronavirus cases circulating in public. Therefore, even if you introduce a reductive measure, like a mask-wearing law, you can never know to what degree that measure is effective in reducing cases of the coronavirus. You cannot calculate a percentage from a reference number which is unknown. What is 20% of an unknown quantity? 10%? 60%?

Exactly.

My point here is that the laws passed by the state in order to ostensibly mitigate the threat of the coronavirus are based on utterly subjective and un-verifiable assumptions. We are unable to know whether or not any of these laws actually have any relevant effect of any kind, let alone a statistically significant one. We do know that measures like mass lockdowns and the inconsistent and random decisions on what constitutes an “essential business” which may remain open to the public have a degenerative effect on the economy and on social cohesion, and we do know how destructive and lethal this is to people. But the state doesn’t care about that. Because here is the reality: In any crisis, the first and foremost problem as far as the government is concerned is always the people. Always remember that.

At any rate, the fundamental coercive nature of the state makes it impossible for it to ever manage a health crisis like SARS-CoV-2, because it precludes the possibly of gathering any objective data which might be useful in combating it. The state, you see, above all, wants to control…it doesn’t seek to understand, to research, to analyze, to think. It wants to control; it wants to consume. That is its only real purpose. Control and consume the individual Self…incorporate the individual  into the Collective Ideal, whatever that may be (e.g. The People, the Nation, the Race, the Church, the Class, the Culture, etc.). The state is not wisdom, it is not truth, it is not life, it is not health, it is not help, it is not science. It is force, and force is violence. Period.

And here is where we get to the truth of what is happening with respect to the coronavirus—a truth is so inexorable that it defies the intentions of even the most benevolent members of government.

What we assume is that the state wants to destroy the virus and preserve the individual. But this is a lie. The state wants to use the coronavirus, like it uses everything else, to eliminate the individual, who represents the only real and relevant threat to government, The individual exists as a thinking, self-actualizing, self-aware, self-volitional agent whose nature as such challenges the state’s presumption of its own Absolute Authority. The self-aware individual has a nature which precludes a natural willingness or even fundamental ability to be controlled and to have truth dictated to him, and this is an unforgivable offense to the state, whose only existential purpose is to do just that: control and dictate. And this is why government measures to manage the virus are seemingly contradictory, chaotic, and irrational. The state’s actions are completely irrational and meaningless with respect to science and medicine, but they ARE COMPLETELY CONSISTENT with its true and ineluctable objective of exercising absolute authority over the individual; to consume him, control him and thereby destroy him.

*

Only men and women who are free to exercise their fundamental and existential core of self-agency, reason, awareness, and volition can ever engage in actions which will truly eliminate threats to their lives and property, because only by this can a truly objective outcome of such actions be achieved: the preservation of humanity as it invariably and necessarily manifests according to its fundamental nature, which is the conscious, volitional Self. Once the individual is redefined by the state as an abject, existential threat to state power, and humanity’s root nature as a thinking, conscious, self-aware, volitional agent is cast as an aberration and as anathema to reality, not an expression of it, then the resolution of all national crises will necessarily involve the increased restriction and subjugation of individual freedom. For the state, the root of all evil is what it considers the great Lie of the Individual, and this is the audacity of human beings to consider their own singular conscious minds and wills as somehow rational, natural, and entitled to some kind of existential consideration, much less promotion and affirmation. You see, all crises, like pandemics for instance, which are not state artifice, are to the state a reflection of the root evil of the individual. Thus, to control and consume the individual is the solution to EVERY problem, be it a pandemic, or foreign hostility, or domestic rebellion, or natural disaster, or whatever, which is why government responses to these crises always involve an expansion of government power over its citizen. The answer is never more freedom, but AlWAYS less, even when more freedom, such as in the case of the coronavirus, would encourage measures that could actually work FOR the individual, not against him, and thus real scientific data could be collected and efficaciously utilized. In a truly free (that is, a stateless) society, we would not attempt to protect people whilst simultaneously reject the very thing that makes them people in the first place—their conscious Selves; their minds, their wills. Only an institution of pure contradiction  and violence, like the state, does this.

So what do the masks represent?

Fundamentally, they are reminder that you are owned. They are an expression of state power; they are another example of the government’s natural instinct to wage war against its citizens—against the individual; against the Self. The implementation of irrelevant and contradictory legal demands is how the state continues to foment the ethos of the mainstream mass acceptance of absolute Authority. The state does not mitigate or prevent crisis—that is neither its purpose nor its nature. It creates crisis, or exploits it, in order to undermine individual human existence by delegitimizing and marginalizing will and thought and reason, all things which affirm and validate human consciousness, and replaces these things with itself. The governing of human beings is, specifically, the subordination of their individual wills and minds, their very natural SELVES, to the external Authority of the state, which is established as the practical and materially efficacious incarnation of the Collective Ideal, whatever that may be—the labels are endless, but they all mean the same thing in the end: totalitarian chaos and the death of man, leading, ironically, to the utter collapse of the state, itself, until the cycle starts all over again

The state exists to become humanity for it; to own it; to subsume it, and consume it, and this is done though the systematic and persistent creation of chaos, the normalization of crisis, the fomenting of a public mindset of abject fear and mistrust, the initiation of utterly irrational and unrealistic legal obligations and threats, and the dissemination of contradictory ideas (e.g. wear a mask to protect others from the coronavirus; it is not safe to breach isolation even with a mask, because a mask will not prevent the spread of coronavirus). These things are intended to demolish humanity’s ability to rationally interpret and thus manage realty in general, and any given environment. This precludes the individual’s successful and productive association, negotiation, and cooperation with his fellow man. The state exploits the chaos for the sake of its own power. It creates crisis, promotes chaos, wages war against its citizens and the rest of the world (to whatever extent it is able) in order to slake its lust for control and wealth and hedonistic whim, all the while telling itself and the rest of humanity that it is doing a broad, benevolent service for mankind, which, if left ungoverned, uncontrolled, and un-coerced, could never exist on its own merits, because it is existentially insufficient. The consciousness is a charlatan; the will ineluctably foolish and barbaric and self-serving, the truth and morality infinitely elusive to the human character. In short, the state assumes that humanity’s metaphysical nature is utterly useless to existence, and then invents or manipulates scenarios to “prove” its assumption.

The state is an intractable psychopath and an insatiable vampire, and it is in charge of protecting your health.

Good luck with that.

Mortality Rate or Tyranny Rate?: Why all the Covid-19 numbers numbers favor state power

Have you ever wondered why, despite the incredibly low case fatality rate, the relatively low incidence rate, the overwhelming percentage of at-risk individuals being comprised of strictly the elderly, and more still, elderly with comorbidities; the prestigious list of scientists who have questioned the efficacy and wisdom of government lockdown measures, or outright condemned them as completely disproportionate relative to the danger (Michael Levitt, John Ioannidis, Knut Wittkowski, Johan Giesecke, Sunetra Gupta, just to name a handful), the scarcity of evidence regarding the efficacy of face masks and social distancing as preventative measures in public settings, the inconsistency with which mortality and incidence rates manifest around the world, the inconsistency with which public health measures are enforced, or that the enforcement seems lightest towards groups who are seen as expeditious to the greater consolidation and expansion of government power …yes, have you every wondered why, despite all of this, that the screws of state control seem to tighten ever more, with no hope of loosening for the foreseeable future?

Well, the answer is simple: All of those statistics, and all of the voices of all of those demurring and suspicious scientists, despite what may be intuitive to us, must and do necessarily affirm, not deny, the blatant increases we are seeing in the practical manifestation of the state’s insatiable totalitarian ambitions.

Let’s take a moment to think about something fundamental. That is, what are we fundamentally admitting when we cry foul at draconian government intrusion upon the rights of life, liberty, association, and property in response to a virus that only has a 1-2% mortality rate, and poses no statistically significant risk to anyone under 21, and only a very minor risk to those between the ages of 21 – 65? What are we conceding when we declare that face masks do not actually work in preventing the spread of coronavirus and more than likely pose a substantial health risk for long term users due to cumulative oxygen deprivation, and the persistent taxing of the body’s cardiopulmonary functions?

Go ahead and take a moment to think about it. I’m sure you will get it, if you haven’t already…

Got it?

Of course you do.

What we are conceding, when we discuss the implied relationship between the numbers and the state’s response, is that the government has the fundamental right to use its coercive violent power to compel individual behavior in order to manage an individual’s risk. We are admitting that the individual does not have a natural right to decide for him or herself what risk to take or not take, or what levels of risk they have deemed acceptable for themselves in service to their own lives, but that, to some degree, inexorably, immutabely, everyone must and shall be managed by state force.

We are conceding that we, the people, do not have full autonomy of our own existence, but that there is a part of our own lives that shall be ever off limits to us, and severed from our wills and our wishes and our minds; that a part of us belongs entirely to the state, to be pushed prodded and threatened and dictated to, irrespective of whatever we feel or desire. We imply that if only the coronavirus were a bit more deadly, then coercive government violence in the form of public health decrees would be acceptable, righteous, and necessary. The only reason we have a problem with what the state is doing is because the numbers are too low. In other words, we concede that the degree to which we should be free to exercise our liberty as individuals, with respect to the coronavirus, and by extension anything else, is nothing more than an academic discussion of “how much?”. How much risk is acceptable? How much liberty should we have in this circumstance or that?

The problem is that the answer to the question “how much?” can and will only ever be provided by the state. And that means totalitarianism.

The individual is a Self; the individual is singular…an “I”, a “Me”. Existentially, you are One. there are no degrees of Self; no percentage of “I”. To claim that you can outsource a part of YOU, of your YOU-NESS, to an authority who shall somehow exist as that part of you for you is folly.

What degree of health risk constitutes the transition between tyranny and liberty? Two percent? Five? 20? 50? At what point do we get to say “Whoa, hold on a minute, that number is too small, you have no authority here”?

The point at which the government must step in and take over—to live our lives for us—is a point that the individual, you and me, cannot see from our existential frame of reference. Our frame of reference is Self…is singular. Self, or “I”, is what we know from and think from and do from, and from our categorical vantage point it is absolute; it is complete; it is whole. We cannot thus claim or concede that there is part of us that is beyond our capacity to know or act from—we would have no frame of reference for this; we would have no way of knowing the amount or percentage of such a thing, or the implications of our inability to manage it, and thus to what extent it should be compelled from outside of us by an external authority.

My point is that as soon as we concede, either explicitly or implicitly, that the state may claim ownership over a part of ourselves we have conceded that the state may claim ownership over all of ourselves.

Discussing or quibbling over numbers is a non sequitur, and even worse a distraction from the real question, which is, “Does the state have a right to manage risk?” That’s the real debate. We should not demand freedom based upon the spurious and irrelevant referencing of scientists and statistics and percentages and spreadsheets and computer models. We should reject asinine, contemptible, childish, and oppressive government demands not because the virus is only one percent dangerous, but because we one hundred percent refuse to become slaves.

There will be No More Elections Because there is no More Need of Them: American capitulation ended the Republic in 2020

I’ve spent a couple of days trying to figure just how to approach this article. I’ll admit, it’s been difficult, and fair warning, I will try to be hopeful here, but this isn’t my strong suit (as I’m sure you’ve noticed if you’ve spent any time reading here). In my own defense, though, history hasn’t provided much evidence in support of hope. Nations collapse, empires implode…this is the way of things. It is the inevitable conclusion of the philosophical premises upon which nations and empires and all governments are built. The manner in which these things happen may be different, this is superficial…the window dressing is of a different color and style, perhaps, but it’s still the same window. Still, the future doesn’t exist yet, by definition, so maybe if enough people push back in whatever ways present themselves moment by moment the worst of the tyranny can be thwarted. But…probably not.

While I’m on the way to the grocery store the other day I see a man in a convertible wearing a face mask. So, yeah…make of that what you will.

The good news is that the guy in the convertible won’t be voting in the next presidential election. The bad news is that neither will you or I. Well, I wasn’t going to anyway because I gave up voting almost ten years ago now…because I can’t get around the rank contradiction of voting for those who will rule me.

But let’s talk about that for a moment. The election I mean, because I think the sooner we  admit to ourselves the truth none of us wish to admit, the sooner we can begin to think about how we will manage things going forward.

As I have mentioned in many previous articles, western representative democracies have relied upon a facade and artifice of “freedom”, and “liberty” and “bill of rights” and “equal representation” and “private property” and “all men are created equal”, and other such bromide which is fed to the masses to goad compliance to the ruling class. Marx once said that “religion is the opium of the masses”…at least I think it was Marx. Maybe it was Neitzsche? At any rate, I completely agree with that statement…but only if by “religion” we mean “liberal democracy” because THAT is a religion which so completely and soundly satisfies the aphorism as to render its application to any other religion somehow shallow and incomplete. Anyway, the ruling class in the West has for a couple of centuries governed in such a way that the tax cattle (the middle class, I mean…the ruling class is to a large extent financed and intellectually defended by the wealthy/monied m class, to the point where the line between them today is blurred almost completely beyond distinction)… the ruling class has in the past governed in such a way that the tax cattle affirm and promote their own oppression and servitude because they believe they are free and not because they know they are NOT, and, somewhat paradoxically, fear punishment for disobedience. Both of these methodologies are effective in compelling slavery to the ruling class, and truly the deception of liberal democracy, where citizens vote for politicians who generally serve only for a set number of years, and who give themselves the massively ironic title of “public servant”, is much more profitable, stable, efficient, and effective than rank tyranny. This is easy to understand, for if one becomes a slave willingly because he thinks slavery is freedom, then the ruling class can focus its energies on consolidating wealth and power and influence and meting out death and destruction with the aid of a good night’s sleep. You see, when the slaves are unaware of their situation, their masters don’t need to spend money on fences and towers and guns and guards. They can pretend that everyone is equal, and that we are all friends, and that any distinction between ruler and ruled is academic at best.

However, as a nation evolves this illusory egalitarian mask begins to crumble…and this perhaps even in spite of the best attempts of the ruling class and their financiers in the wealth and monied classes to prevent it. This has to do with the inexorable evolution of the root ideas. You see, everything boils down to the metaphysics—what is fundamentally believed about the nature of reality will necessary define what is true and what is good and how truth and goodness should be disseminated amongst humanity. And from this we get practical application of the fundamental philosophical ideas. They become manifest…empirical. They are worked out, as it were, and evolve to an inevitable conclusion. It would be too much of a distraction from the main point here to discuss this in detail, and I have done so in other articles on this blog, Suffice to say that all governments are rooted in collective metaphysics, and there is simply no getting around this, and the conclusion of collectivist metaphysics is tyrannical politics, and the conclusion of tyranny is inevitable obsolescence—once the tyrannical authority has destroyed or otherwise neutralized all those over which it has authority, it is no longer an authority, and thus it begins to feed on itself…it becomes an Ouroboros, you could say, and thus becomes what it always intrinsically was: nothingness born from fundamental self-contradiction. So even though the facade of a liberal democracy which pays very convincing lip service to individual rights and liberty is much more effective and efficient when it comes to providing the ruling class with degrees of power and wealth only imagined in outright autocracies, outright autocracy IS the destiny of the liberal democracy.

Here’s why: The ruling class wants to stay the ruling class. After a while, things like term limits and free elections and representation and all that folderol become a distraction, then, as government grows inevitably more and more mendacious, an outright obstacle. Liberal democracy becomes an obstacle to what the ruling class explicitly or implicitly knows is the entire point of the existence of the State, and via State the existence of the ruling class: to rule. .The ruling class then begins to lay down for itself a substrata of unelected power, and this unelected power grows and grows to the point where it can no longer be effectively shielded from public view, and no longer wishes to be. It no longer wishes to pretend it does not exist. It knows the metaphysics, and it knows that according to the metaphysics it alone has the right to dictate truth and to determine the moral virtue of anyone and everyone.

And here we are.

The United States is officially no longer. It is done. Over. 244 years it lasted, and this is completely typical for the life span of an empire. In fact, it’s a little on the short side. An empire, based on historical numbers, lasts an average of ten generations, or 250 years, regardless of the form of government. So the nation which boasts the most enlightened and egalitarian and libertarian version of governance has lasted for a shorter duration than the average. We are not special. We are not freer. We are a nation, and that nation is ruled, and nations that are ruled rise and fall the same way, all the time, every time. Because the metaphysics never change. And never will. At all. Period.

The coronavirus killed the United States, and United Kingdom, and pretty much every other western liberal democracy. The government, almost LITERALLY overnight, abolished Constitutional law, and with it, the rights the Constitution bestows upon the citizens…rights which must be honored if the United States can be considered the United States. Movement, association, private property, commerce, free speech, privacy, education, unbiased application of the law…all abolished in the name of public health.

How ironic.

And in response to this, what did Americans do?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

American dutifully complied, and still comply to this day in the vast majority of cases, with unconstitutional decrees issued not by vote, or consensus, or compromise, or due consideration, but capricious, monolithic, politically expeditious governors’ executive orders which are based on no objective medical data, no validated research, no thought to the severe long term consequences or collateral damage. The State sent its propaganda machine into overdrive, cooking numbers, manipulating data, ignoring contrary expert opinions, condemning citizens who dared demand the right to manage their own risk, and calling people racists when all else failed to shut them up. The usual filthy tactics. Weeks went by, then months, then more months…the lockdown persisted and persisted, even after it was discovered that the virus has mortality rate at best that of the flu, and probably lower. But no pushback was forthcoming. Oh, sure, a few protests popped up here and there, but they were quickly condemned by the propaganda juggernaut of the globalist media, and the participants were threatened with jail and other forms of state violence if they did not comply with social distancing and mask-wearing protocols. Then a black man died whilst in custody of police in Minneapolis, and all hell broke lose. Predictably, the lower class rage mobs of welfare/single motherhood psychological dysfunction, along with communist paramilitary agitators like “Antifa” took to the streets and vomited out their perfunctory moral atrocity upon the land—arson, looting, theft, murder—the usual barbarian fare. The tax cattle put on their masks and social distanced. The police were told to stand down as private property was destroyed and pillaged and some of the tax cattle were shot and beat to death and smashed to pieces. In response the tax cattle put on their masks and social distanced. Then the rage mobs vandalized and burned and  threw down monuments and statues and other testaments to the nation’s history and identity, and once again the police were told to stand down, and they did, and the State let it happen. And the tax cattle put on their masks and social distanced. An entire six-block area of Seattle, Washington was seized by the rage mobs and their communist benefactors, who declared it a distinct and separate geopolitical entity from the United States, and commandeered the property and lives of the citizens who lived and worked there, then proceeded to engage in predictable communist behavior—beating, killing, stealing, vandalizing, terrorizing, destroying, littering, making all things ugly, and excelling at incompetence and filth in general. The police abandoned their station therein and the governor told law enforcement to stand down.

The tax cattle put on their masks and social distanced.

Back to elections.

Taking all of this into account, can we really expect the ruling class to allow anymore “free” elections? And even if by some unlikely chance they do, that they will honor the outcomes, assuming they do not interfere with those outcomes, or that they will represent anything meaningful? Elections exist to placate the tax cattle…to maintain the illusion of freedom, because this illusion is seen as a necessary pillar of their power and wealth. But this illusion is clearly no longer necessary. The tax cattle aren’t stirring, they aren’t threatening anything…they are following the herd to the feed troughs and charnel houses and milking-stables in lines, socially distancing six-feet apart and wearing masks. Cities burn and monuments crumble and the Constitution lines litter boxes and American shrug. When the signal is red, we stop. When it is yellow we use caution. And when it’s green we go, but only after seeking a reassuring nod from our overlords in the respective capital cities.

I have two words for you: Joe Biden. He is all you need to know about how seriously the ruling class is taking the next presidential election. A demented old man nearing 80 who can’t string together a coherent sentence and can’t remember anything socially relevant that happened after 1972 and has a rap sheet of corruption that reaches to Neptune and has a reputation of being gropey and gross and who couldn’t beat Trump in a debate if Trump were reading off the funny pages. No one on the left is excited about Biden, no democrat has even a thimble-full of political faith in him, and the ruling class in general, with the election a mere four months away and a chance to oust their most hated president in US history, is almost entirely ignoring the election and instead is devoted to carpet bombing Americans with the endless demagoguery and fear-mongering of an essentially harmless and irrelevant virus.

Those of you who anxiously anticipate the reelection of President Trump as some sort of stop-gap or even remedy to the impending tyranny, my understanding and sympathies are with you. However, I do feel that reality is always the best approach, so I am compelled to inform you that you should anticipate Trump’s reelection no longer. Because there will be no election. Our rulers no longer have to pretend that they serve. Now they are free to simply rule.

Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part FOUR)

Now, about the police, and the calls to defund them by communist organizations like “Antifa” and “Black Lives Matter”, along with a substantial number of ruling class elites and politicians. America is not Cuba, or China, or North Korea, or East Germany in the 1950s and 1960s. Unlike these overtly totalitarian regimes, whose ruling classes openly employ the police as rank puppets of their autocratic ideologies, and where the police essentially comprise the sum and substance of the judicial system on the whole, where knee-smashing and head-bashing thugs are given badges and uniforms and are tasked with being judge, jury, and executioner all in one…unlike these places, the ruling class of the West, and the United States in particular, have much more of a reluctant relationship with the police. In a “perfect” totalitarian state, which again as I have mentioned previously in this series, is the logical conclusion of all governments, including western democracies, despite totalitarianism being less profitable and less efficient, the police serve the whims and pleasures of the ruling class at all times, without exception, and with pure, undiluted violence, to compel the categorical rank servitude of the masses in both thought and deed. But here in the West, and again the United States in particular, the police serve as an unwitting part of the facade of “constitutional freedom”, and the feint and artifice of liberal democracy. This is because in the West, “liberal democracy” is the ostensible context in which the ruling class operates and exists…it is why the ruling class is the ruling class. Thus, it is the illusion which the ruling class must maintain in order to continue to enjoy the power they possess. Now, again, understand that this does not mean that liberal democracy is maintained in perpetuity in the West…the whole point of this article series is to articulate an example of the evolution of liberal democracy into rank authoritarianism, and the natural tendency of the ruling class to resort to overt tyranny in place of any other form of governance. The natural progression of the philosophical premises which underwrite and inform government ALWAYS lead to an overtly totalitarian conclusion. It is unavoidable. Here I am simply pointing out the irony that is particular to western democracy: that in the interest of preserving it, and thus preserving their political power, the ruling class will reject liberal democracy in favor of the more messy and less efficient, less profitable totalitarian version of governance. This is why politicians in the U.S. will, for example, speak of preserving Constitutional liberties and the right of all Americans to be treated fairly whilst simultaneously ordering the police to stand down and allow enormous sections of dozens of cities to be burned to the ground by rioting mobs of rank communists, and, by the ruling class’s brazen inaction, facilitate the destruction of public and private monuments and statues throughout the nation, which is a direct assault on the identity of the very country they claim to publicly serve.

At any rate, as important members of the political farce called “liberal democracy”, the police in the West must be seen (in most circumstances, anyway) to uphold said democracy, and in the United States, this means upholding the constitution, and this means serving and protecting the rights of the citizen against constitutional violations, even if those violations are perpetrated by the ruling class.  And this means that many police officers identify with the more conservative end of the political spectrum, and thus do not easily acquiesce to being pawns of the ruling class In its quest for greater and more direct control of the masses. The police for the most part are obedient and they are ideological, which is expected from those who have given their lives in service to the State. But because they see themselves as important players in the preservation of the Constitution, and the liberties that that document ostensibly implies, the police pushback against the totalitarian decrees issued by the ruling class more often than the ruling class would like. A good example is the refusal of many police and sheriffs departments in the U.S. to enforce the ridiculous, pointless, and clearly unconstitutional “public health” edicts handed down by governors with respect to the coronavirus pandemic, where governors acted independently of any state congressional approval, or even congressional involvement at all, let alone taxpayer consent. This kind of pushback from law enforcement makes the police ultimately unreliable when it comes to exercising the kind of direct violent control of the masses the ruling class must rely upon more and more as the liberal democracy over which it presides continues its inexorable slide towards the sewer of totalitarianism.

All of this being the case, we can see now why, for a while, anyway, the ruling class must outsource its tyrannical wishes to the lower, dependent-class rage mobs of almost perfect and perfectly pure psychosocial dysfunction. Yet, as I have explained, this arrangement with the mob—the informal soldier of the state rampaging through his own neighborhood destroying whatever and whomever he can find, giving no real thought to the distinction between friend or foe, possessing no objective which is truly comprehensible to himself, and, in addition to destroying his environment, destroying himself—this arrangement is not ideal. The ruling class understands that this approach is brazen, indelicate, off-putting, inefficient, and expensive, and their complicity becomes harder and harder to hide. To instead formalize this mob…to make it official business of the State to terrorize and traumatize the tax cattle into submission by giving the mob badges and uniforms and service weapons  and pensions and a formal, albeit rudimentary and simplistic, ideology upon which to smash and murder and rob and torture—this is a better, more ecological strategy, as far as the purposes is of the ruling class is concerned. By exerting formal, direct control over the mob by institutionalizing it and calling it the police, the ruling class is better able to mitigate their uncertainties with respect to their power going forward. The police, unlike simple rioters, can be more incisive, exact, nuanced, more psychologically threatening, surreptitious, subliminal, and controllable; more loyal, less expensive, less ostentatious, less messy.

Replacing the mob with the cops, however, is a challenge. It’s not a simple task because whilst doing so the ruling class must continue to maintain the illusion of a free and representative western liberal democracy. This is hard to do when the very suggestion of replacing the police can be understood even to the most intellectually somnolent citizen (which is most of them) as a rejection—to at least some degree—of the current judicial system. Thus, in order to make more palatable the idea of replacing law-enforcement defenders of the Constitution with hired thugs who will wipe their jackboots on the document, the ruling class engages its propaganda machine to demonize, demoralize, and morally condemn the police as being guilty of the very things they wish to bring about by replacing them. It’s a pretty effective form of psychological warfare, if not a particularly imaginative one. Simple reverse psychology, but it works. The police are scapegoated and defamed as racist, hateful, trigger-happy, violence-loving, mindless barbarians who indiscriminately accost and attack and murder members of the victim class through sheer murderous pleasure—the “victim class” meaning, in the United States, blacks, and occasionally other “minority” groups, when convenient; the reason blacks are so often portrayed as the victim, however, is that they are so easily provoked to outrage and violence, and this because the ruling class has hooked the black community on the drug of welfare more than any other group by far—and all of these fabricated police atrocities and dark psychological characteristics of course are the very things which shall become ubiquitous in law enforcement and completely legalized once the ruling class is able to manipulate law-enforcement directly, without having to pay lip-service or deference (however superficial it already is) to pesky inconveniences like Constitutional rights.

Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part THREE)

After several months of compliance, the citizens are beginning to reject the lockdown. There are lawsuits, there have been protests, masks are not being worn in public and businesses are not enforcing mask or social distancing laws; some counties have defied governors’ mandates and have moved ahead with easing the lockdown without executive approval. People are beginning to recognize the rank incompetence of the State in handling this pandemic, and they are casting more and more of a suspicious eye upon the data being provided to them by government health agencies and disseminated by the transnational propaganda machine otherwise known as the mainstream media. In short, Americans are rejecting the ruling class’s capricious and bumbling management of their lives with respect to this pandemic.

And here cue the mob.

The ruling class has always employed enforcers…those whose job it is to remind the sheep and cattle just who is in charge. A boot to the crotch, a pipe to the knee, a club to the back of the head, a brick to  the window, a flame to the store…in more official arrangements of totalitarianism you’ll see, in addition to the aforementioned, random arrests, random convictions, long and violent interrogations looking for no real specific information…that kind of thing. Here in the United States the ruling class has no official nor officially sanctioned enforcers, obviously, because this would necessarily undermine the facade of liberal democracy, which undermines their wealth and power; and let’s not forget that the artifice of liberal democracy has  been the mechanism for the greatest non-voluntary wealth transfer in the history of the world. So here, in the U.S., we don’t get the Blue Caps or the Santebal or the  Stasi, we get the mob.

After all, the ruling class in the West cannot simply send in official and officially uniformed, formally sanctioned death squads to capture, torture, and murder the disobedient human tax cattle, by which we mean the middle class, in order to “coax” them back into line. The cattle should not be spooked by such optics. They must be kept docile, and their docility is to a large part ensured by the belief that their government actually cares about them, and respects their individual identity and autonomy. This is of course so obviously false that one wonders why the ruling class bothers attempting to hide the truth at all, and yet in spite of  clear, if not officially acknowledged, disdain for those over whom they rule, the vast majority of Americans continue to believe that their government is, at root, completely benevolent and meritorious, and that it is the perversion of the Constitution which is to blame for their misery, and not the logical consequences of the philosophical principles upon which the Constitution is established that has brought us to where we are today.

Anyway, in response to the flouting of lockdown orders and mask laws, the unofficial State enforcers are called up for active duty. Triggered by unofficial State-sponsored propaganda, like, for example, “random” videos of “random” white police brutality against “random” and “innocent” black people, the mob is sent in to terrorize urban areas, which of course lay just at the gates of the tranquil bourgeois neighborhoods of the suburbs, and in some cases, the mob is even leaked to a small degree into the suburbs, in the form of “protestors”, who are not necessarily violent, yet violence is the message which is being conveyed, if only implicitly. Obey or else, is the message they bring, as they point to the destruction raging just beyond the pristine middle class streets.

The mob is of course comprised of the unofficial enforcement shock troops of the ruling class, and by this I mean the government-subsidized lower classes. The State-sponsored and State-financed brigades of manufactured dependents, whose indolence and irresponsibility and social dysfunction and open rejection of beauty and nobility and integrity and art and intelligence and reason and tradition and social contract and morality is subsidized and thus encouraged by trillions of dollars of public assistance money, paid for by the middle class tax cattle. The ruling class raises up legions of undereducated, angry, unsupervised, bored, hopeless, thoughtless, self-aggrandizing, narcissistic and psychopathic, sexually immature soldiers, raised in violent, dangerous, fatherless, mentor-less, dysfunctional, and supremely traumatic environments and unleashes them upon the city to do what they do best—destroy themselves and everything around them. Thus, the unspoken and implied message to the middle class from the ruling class is sent: You need us. Without us, your political overlords, look at what you shall reap. We are what separates you from the barbarian hordes; we are WHY they are at your gates and not at your front doors. You will continue to obey. You will continue to accept your role as political scapegoat and as tax cattle. We will cut you up for meat and leather and milk and veal, and you will accept all blame and moral condemnation that is rightly applied to us; you will absorb the ire and invective coming from the communist, indolent, entitled academic idiots and their idiotic pupils for social ills that we have wrought and in return we will keep the mob behind the class wall.

Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part TWO)

When viewed as chronological episodes of a communist coup perpetrated by communist political and paramilitary organizations like “Black Lives Matter” and “Antifa” (quotes used due to the inherent hypocrisy in the names), the relationship between the recent riots in the United States and the subsequent demands to defund the police becomes apparent. These two incidents, combined with what can only be described by as unconstitutional and totalitarian suspension of the right to life, property, and association in response to a pandemic which was misunderstood by not only the government, but the medical and scientific community, to the point of utterly infantile incompetence, constitute a trifecta of subversive communist maneuvers designed to collapse the system of representative democracy and replace it with a Marxist ethno-state where the “racist, privileged white classes” serve at the pleasure of some nebulous and under-defined victimhood of marginalized “people of color”. You may be tempted to think that, due to the prevalence of white people who support this ideology, that this is a movement of true equality for all races, true Diversity. However, Diversity as an Ideal, which it must be to constitute the basis of a political movement, is monolithic. Meaning that Diversity must be able to to article the antithesis of itself…it must be able to say that which is NOT diverse, and then morally condemn it. And what is NOT diverse is the “system” of “white privilege”. In other words, that which is the evil antithesis of Diversity is Whiteness, and the repository of Whiteness is White people. White people represent the evil of white privilege and are thus an affront to Diversity. Which means they must be subordinated and eventually eradicated.

Don’t believe me? Fine. Think what you want, but this is how it is, whether you accept it or not. You will surely see. And it is truly a short walk from disallowing representation based on racial identity to the gas chambers. So if you’re white, and you support leftist Diversity ideology and are in favor of its application via US law, you might want to remember what happened the last time a violent, racist group of leftist ideologues gained a political majority in a powerful imperial nation with the weapons, resources, and audacity to commit blatant genocide in front of the entire world.

Mask laws are not laws for public health, because there is absolutely no evidence that they are effective in doing what the State tells us they will do: protect us from respiratory illness, and in fact they might and probably do make the problem worse. What mask-laws, and social distancing laws to an extent, are, I submit, are a test of public compliance. The state governors demand obedience to unconstitutional dictatorial decrees regarding a mild respiratory illness, demand that law enforcement proceed with monitoring of required behavior and promise punishment for non-compliance, and then sit back and see who and how many fall into line. The reason I focus upon mask-wearing is because among the three most prevalent behavioral orders—stay-at-home, social distancing, and masking wearing—mask wearing is the most obvious of all when it comes to gauging public compliance.

Despite there being absolutely no conclusive, or, I would submit, even convincing, scientific evidence that wearing a cloth mask over one’s face in public does anything to reduce the spread or risk of coronavirus, and despite that almost no effort was exerted by government to ensure and enforce proper mask-wearing practices, making it almost inevitable that mask-wearing would facilitate the spread of coronavirus, regulations were and continue to be legally binding upon citizens. In short, Americans are being asked to obey a law which was instituted unilaterally by governors with absolutely no evidence that the law was necessary nor effective nor moral. In other words, governors demanded that Americans obey an arbitrary law simply for the sake of obedience, alone. Period. Which is about as far from constitutional and democratic as it gets. “Obey or else” is not the foundation of American enlightenment democracy. The governors don’t seem to care.  And that is scary.

Americans, in response to this, and to the propaganda fear-mongers otherwise known as the mainstream media, and to the pseudo-science of government-funded opportunists in the medical community, dutifully donned the masks…for a while. Then the warm weather came, cries of falling skies and streets littered with the dead and dying victims of coronavirus, and soaring case fatality, mortality, and infection rates were all found to be completely manipulated, and the predictions based on models which were off by mathematical factors so extreme as to make the data incomprehensible. And here Americans began to grow lax with in their obedience. The masks began to slip…businesses no longer really enforced social-distancing and mask-wearing rules, though they remain in place nominally. Now, despite no official retraction in many places of mask laws, shelter-in-place laws, or social distancing laws, Americans are becoming less and less compliant, and are more open about flouting the unconstitutional demands placed upon them by despotic governors. They are starting to understand these “public health” laws for what they are: pointless, counterproductive, and stupid. No thanks to any diligent or responsible reporting from the media, I should add. No, the media sold out to ideology and profit decades ago. And Americans are understanding this, too.

Make no mistake about it, the ruling class is very displeased with this. Americans appealing to their rights as free and complete individuals, capable of competently living their own lives and making their own choices in their own best interests absent the incompetent meddling and tantrum-throwing of socialist ninnies and nannies in government is NOT what the ruling class wants from its subjects.Subjects are to be ruled, and the ruled obey. The constitutionality of the law is irrelevant. If man could work out his existence effectively and morally by being FREE and exercising individual liberty, then man wouldn’t need to be governed in the first place. They ruling class knows this, and they expect you to know it, too. Appealing to your constitutional rights doesn’t inspire your leaders or impress them, it simply pisses them off. If the governor wants you to wear a mask, you wear it. It’s that simple. And you’ll wear it for as long as it pleases them. If you wear it to the graveyard or crematorium and beyond, so be it. It’s the law. They are the law-givers; you are the law-taker. Take it. Do it. And shut up.

In part three, we’ll examine the role of the rioting rage mobs, and why they logically follow the mask-laws and the citizens’ rejection of these laws.

Coronavirus and Lockdown Overreach: Why the science is both odious and irrelevant

It is unfortunate that those of us who point out the unnecessary misery and chaos which has arisen from the embarrassing State overreaction to Covid-19 are compelled to include the epidemiological data in our arguments, as well as a variety of quotes and perspectives from scientific and medical experts in the field. And it is unfortunate for a couple of reasons.

First, it conflates and combines what are really two separate issues, the virus itself and its medical impact, and the government measures taken to manage it. The virus itself and its medical implications for you and me should have nothing whatsoever to do with the government. And if you ask me why, I will kindly direct your attention to the US unemployment and debt data, the current stats on psychological trauma related to the lockdown, as the burning cars and tire fires in front of the White House.

Second, it presumes and implies the lie that the State would have been perfectly justified and within its scope to seize control of private property, and dictate the terms by which individuals associate and where they are allowed to do so; that it would have been perfectly acceptable for the State to immediately claim ownership of every man, woman, and child, to collapse the economy, to plunge the nation into ever greater heights of unplayable debt, and usher in an pandemic of psychological fallout that shall dwarf the coronavirus and every other pandemic which came before it.

I find it ironic, if not rather depressing, that people feel that they must resort to mortality and case fatality statistics, SIR models, and R rates in order to defend the philosophical axioms that make individual existence, and all of that scientific data, possible in the first place. Among these philosophical axioms is the inviolable (without disastrous consequences) truth of one’s sovereign ownership of one’s own Self and correspondingly of one’s own labor. Further, I submit that an appeal to the epidemiological data as proof that the State has acted incompetently is really, in fact, only proof that one does not understand the State at all, nor appreciate the fact that if the defense of freedom from tyranny and exploitation were left in the hands of the scientists, with their tenuous grasp on philosophical reasoning and their irrational devotion to ludicrous determinism as an explanatory basis for anything, documents like the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights never would have been written in the first place; and representative democracies throughout the world would never have seen the light of day.

The idea that I have to prove that the coronavirus is not particularly medically dangerous and represents no existential threat to man nor society in order to make a digestible and acceptable argument for ending the lockdown makes me, quite frankly, sick to my stomach. Neither the State nor any other agency or institution, nor man, woman, or child, may claim a right to my life, body, property, or associations, in any circumstance, ever, be it the coronavirus or a giant asteroid or a “war on terror”, a locust plague, a famine, a drought…anything. Government should never be in the business of risk management, because government, frankly, sucks at it.

The State’s answer to saving and protecting life means creating a situation in which life is not worth living. Risk management, the protection of individuals from the dangers of simply being alive, whether it involves climbing a ladder, flying on an airplane, driving a car, eating certain foods, engaging in certain sports, or navigating through the scary microscopic world of viruses and bacteria—whatever—requires nuance, an understanding and appreciation of context; it requires flexibility and temperance, a sense of proportion, and above all, an acceptance of the truth of the individual as a singular and singularly free-thinking agent, ultimately unattached to some collective ideation, and thus able to make efficacious choices in pursuit of a moral existence on his own—that is, that the individual in and of himself is naturally sufficient to his own existence.

Government understands none of this. There is nothing nuanced or delicate or nimble to the State. The State is blunt force…it is murder, it is flattened cities, it is prison, it is one-size-fits-all; it is bombs and guns and tear gas and jack boots and mushroom clouds, it is FORCE. Every drawing it makes looks like scribble, every photograph it takes is black, every song it composes is a shriek. The State knows nothing about protection, only SUBMISSION. It attacked the coronavirus with the same tool it uses to attack any problem, the only tool it has—a hammer. It cannot medically subordinate the virus…for that takes knowledge and experience and forethought and experiment; it cannot discern the at-risk from the unaffected and make public health recommendations accordingly, for that takes nuance and discernment and strategy and mercy and compassion. It cannot smash the virus into oblivion, for the virus is too small and elusive; and it cannot threaten the virus, for the virus cannot recognize its authority.

The State can, however, demolish the lives of the citizens it rules…it can “save” them by destroying them before the virus does; it can make the virus look like a party compared to the misery the State can produce. It can, within the span of a few short weeks, amass numbers of dead and dying that make the coronavirus look like a mole hill, rendering the virus completely innocuous by comparison.

How do you flatten the coronavirus curve?

By making a bigger curve out of the misery and destruction of the population you govern.

THAT is what the State is good at, and that is just what it has done.

So spare me the science; tie it to a rock and throw it in the lake. Show me a man who believes that you and I have a right to our own lives ONLY when the science shows that there is no longer any risk from the coronavirus, and I will show you a man who believes that you and I NEVER had any right to our own lives in the first place.

The “New Normal” is a Euphemism for Indefinite Lockdown: Why the lockdown will never end

If you have spent any time reading this blog, it is likely that you have an understanding of the nature of government, and by that I mean: the metaphysical foundations upon which government is built. If you are new to this blog, you may not yet grasp these foundations, so I will summarize them for you now. This will not be a detailed examination of the metaphysics of the State, but for the purposes of this post, it will give you a basic framework as context:

There are basically two kinds of metaphysical archetypes, Individualist and Collectivist. Individualist metaphysics allow for few if any variations of political iterations beyond the type which is pretty well obviously implied by the archetype itself. Almost exclusively Individualist metaphysics imply categorical voluntarism as the political iteration. Individualist metaphysics presume that man is ultimately a function of Himself…that is, His own ability to exist as Self, which implies Self-ownership (one’s body is owned by one’s Self, and therefore so is one’s labor), thus individualist metaphysics simply do not and cannot accommodate the existence of Coercive Authority as a means to organize humanity sociopolitically. There is no such thing as Government or the State within the politics which proceed from individualist metaphysics. All interaction and all value exchange are done ONLY at the level of the individual, and thus categorically voluntary value exchange is the only possible means of ANY value exchange of ANY kind whatsoever. The use of coercive violence to compel behavior does not exist in Individualist philosophy…at least, not a rationally consistent individualist philosophy. Coercive violence IS permitted in the case of preventing or mediating direct violations of individuals, but due to the nature of individualist ethics, this does not constitute a violation of the Self of the one violating his fellow man, and thus it is not a violation of voluntarism. I will not describe the full complexities of individualist ethics here, for obvious reasons.

Collectivist metaphysics on the other hand not only allow for the existence of governments and states but necessitate them, because the politics implied by collectivist metaphysics are rooted in violence (force) in order to compel behavior. In collectivist metaphysics a human being is not a function of himself—his own ability to exist as Self—but is instead a function of some essentially ethereal, fundamentally indescribable, inscrutable determinative force, which ultimately defies human understanding, because its infinite nature is is perfect and absolute whilst man’s is vulgar in comparison…graceless, rudimentary, and starkly finite. This determinative force can come in many iterations, an almost infinite variety or combination of them, really, from a deity, to deities, to mathematical or natural law, to evolutionary forces, biological forces, cosmological forces, ideals based on race, or culture, or national identity, tribalism, social class, economic class, mystical caste systems, etc., etc. It can even come in the guise of individualism, such as the Ideal of The People we see in the United States, where “People” is ostensibly meant to be the collection of INDIVIDUAL citizens, but, due to the a-priori presence of the State, really amounts to nothing more than another collective ideal into which individuals must be compelled by State violence.

Collectivist metaphysics, because they reject the efficacious existence of the individual, necessarily reject the efficacious existence of individual consciousness, and thus they reject the idea that the individual is fundamentally capable of making efficacious use of his volition and choice. Therefore has no ability to behave ethically as ethics are defined according to collectivist metaphysics, and thus he must be compelled by law—where the law is merely the sublimation of State violence…that is, the law gives ethical legitimacy to the State as it commits violations of individuals in the interest of the collective Ideal. Now, in the same way, the collective Ideal is the sublimation of the State, meaning that the Ideal, such as “The People” here in the U.S., doesn’t exist in any real way except as manifest by the State, itself. So the State IS the very tangible existence of the Ideal on earth. Thus, politically, the real point is to SACRIFICE the individual to the State, in service to the collective Ideal (the ideal being the determinative force which created all people and all things in the first place). And this is NEVER seen as some kind of ethical violation on the part of the State against the individual because in collectivist metaphysics, the individual doesn’t actually exist at all, remember? Consciousness, the Self, Will, Choice…these are all illusions at best, products of the unenlightened barbarian who is simply unable to grasp the truth that he is not actually HIMSELF at all. The “sinful nature” of the individual which is his fundamental existential core is his insistence that he EXISTS. Law and the State violence which accompanies and is corollary to Law is used as a means to ultimately eradicate the Self and bring the physical body into line with the Truth, which is the collective Ideal. Once a State is established, the State is all that matters because, metaphysically, the State is all that can be said to actually MEAN anything, BE anything, or DO anything of any practical value because the State is the ONLY legitimate incarnation/representation of the collective Ideal which is a function of the Determinative Force which created everything in the first place.

So what in the hell does any of this have to do with the current lockdown?

I’m glad you asked.

First, let me say that the reason I expend so much blog real estate on discussing the metaphysical roots of the State—the nature of the State—when discussing the coronavirus situation and the lockdown is that these roots of the State are where one shall find a truly meaningful explanation for what is going on in this ostensibly irrational lockdown situation. IF you understand the philosophical fundamentals upon which the State is established, then you can see that what is happening is not merely insanity run amok, or western narcissism and societal fracturing manifesting itself in response to some perceived global existential threat, or even simple political corruption perpetrated by the large number of “bad seeds” we’ve unfortunately elected to represent us. In short, if you understand the true and irreducible WHY, which is the philosophical WHY, then you can truly understand not merely what is happening now, but what will happen next—at least generally. Though what specifically will come next may reveal itself in an unforeseen way, you will readily perceive it as a necessary effect of what came before. And furthermore you will understand what is happening now in the overall context of not only the existence of the State under whose authority you find yourself at present, but the existence of the State since its inception, and indeed, the existence of ALL States. You may not be happy with what is happening, but at least you need not be confounded and frustrated at what seems like rank madness. You will see that all the “madness” actually makes sense, and you will understand that what is happening is really the only thing that could have ever happened.

Now, referring back to the metaphysical roots of government, we now know that based upon how the State defines individuals (as not fundamentally being themSelves and having no legitimate individual existence), that the State cannot actually do anything FOR people, but only TO them. The purpose of the People—the individual people that make up a given nation’s citizenry—is to be subordinated to the collective Ideal, and this means, in practicality, to the State. This is the whole point of law. Individual choice and volition is bypassed and obedience instead is the means by which the ethics of society shall be ultimately realized. What you want is irrelevant; that you OBEY is what matters to government. We can distract ourselves from the truth of our place and purpose with the bromide of rights and liberty and representative government and free elections, but since an option in any election is NEVER “no government”, then all elections are merely a reinforcement of the right of the State to exist. And the right of the State to exist implies the right of the State to pursue its purpose. And its purpose is to COMPEL individual behavior into collective action by force. Period. As a philosopher named John Immel once put it, “government is force”, and that is all you really need to know to understand government in its entirety. Thus, the only thing we are ever really voting for is the right of the State to rule us. Which makes voting itself an arrant rejection of our own volition and the efficacy of our own choices, and thus our own existence, making voting an exercise in abject Self-nullification. And we wonder why we have a deep State. Voting, ironically, implies the existence of a deep state (an unelected group of rulers who govern absolutely and indefinitely). The deep state does not exist to subvert voting; it exists as voting’s most perfect and rational conclusion.

This brings us to the salient question of this article: Why will the lockdown never end?

At this point, I’m sure you, being astute, have already discovered the answer, but I will give it here in the interest of rounding out my thoughts. The lockdown was instituted in service to the one thing that ultimately matters to the State, and represents its most basic and salient purpose:

Control.

The lockdown was applied as a means to exercise State control over the masses, which makes the fundamental reason for it the same as the reason for every other regulation. Control. Certainly the ostensible rationale was to protect public health, but this is merely a superficial apologetic for the underlying tyrannical interests of government. All State regulations have a veneer of “public interest” which is meant to imply that they are FOR the citizen, but when we remember that the term “public” is always in reference to the collective Ideal and that the State IS that Ideal incarnate, whatever is done for the public is really done FOR the State, and thus is done TO the citizen…that is, at the citizen’s expense.

Why could citizens not be left alone to deal with pandemic in their own way? Why was it assumed that the State MUST intervene with rule, regulation, and decree? Well, the reason is fundamentally found in the metaphysics. The reason man NEEDS government in the first place is that he is entirely insufficient to his own existence. The individual functions from a frame of reference of Self, of I, and instantiates this via volition and choice. But the Self is an imposter to reality according to collectivist metaphysics. Choice and Will and Self are sinful and wrong in that they contradict the State, and the State is rooted in the collective Ideal, and the collective Ideal is the Determinative Force, and THAT is what is the essence of reality is. Not the Self…not the individual. The citizens, left to themselves, will always fail, because they cannot understand reality, because they see if from an infinitely flawed frame of reference.

The reason for the lockdown, again, is control, as control is the reason for everything the State does TO the people it rules. Thus, if we ask the question “When will the lockdown end”, the answer is that it will only end when the end represents a greater measure of control. The government cannot relinquish control any more than the viper can stop slithering on the ground and begin to fly. It simply isn’t its nature. You will notice that every seeming compromise of the State with the people is merely an expression of government power…it is in the interest of power that the State makes any concessions, which makes “concession” merely a manifestation of power. Whenever the State relents here, it inevitably doubles down over there. The State never relinquishes control because control is what it IS, and it cannot BY itself DENY itself. Even if the lockdown were to be ended, what has happened? Wrecked economy, shattered societal cohesion, health crisis in every medical arena in addition to the coronavirus, explosions of alcoholism, drug use, suicide, domestic abuse, gutted lower classes, atomized populace, inner city chaos, all of which the government will predictably move in to manage, thus exponentially raising the level of State control to atmospheric heights. Add to that, we have set an irreversible precedent of plenary government control of everything and everyone in response to a crisis, which will be defined by the State, of course. Our government, in response to situations IT decides are sufficiently threatening, now openly presumes the right to dictate religion, social interaction, association, travel, commerce, business, and property ownership.

So when will the lockdown end?

At this point we can see that this question is entirely meaningless, and was always going to be meaningless. We could answer “never”, but that simply doesn’t do the profound backdrop of such a question any justice. It’s a facile answer…it’s dust. The lockdown is control, and control is the State. The lockdown is simply a necessary manifestation of existence as it is defined by collectivist metaphysics.

In other words, lockdown isn’t a lockdown, per se…

The lockdown simply is.

Lockdown Hell: Altruism Instantiated (Part TWO)

So, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which one are you, “privileged” or “unprivileged”? Are you the sacrificed-to or the sacrificed?

Like I sad in part one of this article series, the answer when examined in the meta is: both and neither, meaning that at any give time, depending on the whims of the ruling class and on general political expediency, you could be the perfidious, mendacious, exploitative, oppressive, naturally and institutionally privileged one, who became privileged off the backs of the unprivileged which you exploit, and this according to your nature (you could never have chosen to be anything other than the oppressive monster you were born to be), and thus your property and your body shall be processed and commodified and sent as spoils to the “unprivileged” in the name of “social justice”; or you could be be the innocent victim, whose misfortune to have been born a certain way and into a specific collective identity determines that you shall ever be the unprivileged prey of the rapacious and dead-eyed privileged class. But never fear, the State shall swoop in on your behalf with its bristling guns, anxious bombs, and itchy trigger fingers to seized the collars of the petulant privileged, flip them upside down and empty their pockets straight into your gaping mouths.

But in the specific context of the coronavirus, the answer as to who is “privileged” and who is “unprivileged” is simple: If you are not in the at-risk group (elderly and/or with a comorbidity) then you are “privileged”. If you are, then you are “unprivileged”.

Notice the altruistic mantra of those vacant souls who defend the lockdown as necessary and justifiable—we can’t allow people to put other people at risk. Just because YOU may not suffer any significant effects of the coronavirus, doesn’t mean that we can allow you to infect those who might. This is markedly different from what we were first told, which was that this was an extremely deadly and dangerous virus that does not discriminate between men, women, or children, and we were regaled endlessly in the earlier days of the lockdown with horror stories of all manner of young and middle-aged people who were suddenly finding their birth date no hedge against the tiny, invisible enemy. Yet now the REAL data is in, and has managed to circumvent the editors of the Department of Propaganda and Psy-Ops, otherwise known as the mainstream media, and the findings of rational, objective, non-partisan experts are proving this pandemic to be nothing more than a relatively harmless influenza-like illness with mortality rates on par or even lower than that of the flu, and which not only DOES INDEED discriminate between the elderly and the young, but discriminates so severely that virtually no one under the age of 21 will even notice that they have it should they catch it, and anyone under 65 will almost certainly recover fully, with symptoms more likely to be mild than not. In the face of REAL facts and REAl data, which reveal that there is simply nothing to panic about, let alone worth destroying the economy and the lives of millions along with it through the seizure of all manner of life and property by the executives of the states who think that the best thing for them to do in service to public health is to channel Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin, the narrative has shifted from “we are all in this together, because we are all at risk”, to “we cannot allow YOU to put at risk those who are not so privileged as you to be young and healthy”. In other words, we have gone from “we all benefit from the lockdown” to the idea that the “privileged” must be rendered  ‘unprivileged’ so that we can all be equal and social justice satisfied. And since the State, being purely an agent of violence, coercion, and thus destruction, and is completely incapable by nature of fundamentally doing anything FOR man but only TO him, the only way to achieve equality is for the State to wreck life to the point where it is miserable for EVERYONE (except the ruling class, of course) EQUALLY, regardless of one’s choices or one’s particular natural circumstance.

In summary, as it pertains to the faux exigency in which we find ourselves, the socialist altruistic platitude has gone from “We are all in this together,” to “You must be sacrificed for the common good.”
